"I really enjoyed Chewy - a book with a powerful and heart-warming message.
In a world where old-fashioned notions like community, closeness and neighbourliness seem to have been lost, it is one of those unexpected stories that restore your faith in our collective nature.
It also reminds us, once again, what an important role animals can play in our lives." (James Bowen, author of A Street Cat Named Bob).
The first time Bruce Klein caught sight of Chewy, this beautiful street dog captured his heart.
Chewy had been a stray since he was a puppy. Sometimes he travelled with other street dogs, but more often he made his rounds alone.
Bruce began to feed this timid St Bernard Cross, and he soon met other locals who looked out for Chewy too.
The neighbours saw Chewy shivering in the winter rain, and knew it would only be a matter of time until the local animal control put him down.
Bruce was happy to take him home, but Chewy was big and frightened.
Rescuing him wouldn't be simple - the neighbours had to devise a plan...Chewy is the uplifting true story of how a whole neighbourhood came together to change one dog's life.
It will capture your heart too.
